The next time you’re too tired (or downright lazy) to force yourself to the gym, just go back to this post for inspiration. Former Heavyweight boxing champion and all-around knockout machine, Mike Tyson, is absolutely jacked at the age of 54 just two weeks out from his boxing match against Roy Jones Jr.

And while the event will be strictly exhibition, “Iron Mike’s” physique is the real deal.

Tyson started getting back into fighting shape in late 2019 in the hopes of mounting a combat comeback. And while no fights against today’s best surfaced, Tyson did get several offers, including some interest from Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC).

In the end, Tyson inked a contract to face off against fellow legend Roy Jones Jr. After a few hurdles got in the way, the bout — which is said to carry with it a $49.99 pay-per-view (PPV) price tag — was postponed.

Now, the heavy hitters are set to throw down on Nov. 28, 2020, in Carson Calif., with the winner being crowned with the inaugural “Frontline Battle” belt. Tyson last competed 15 years ago and ended his boxing career with two straight losses. Jones, 51, fought as recently as 2018 and is currently on a four-fight win streak.
